Will Crystal Cruises come up with a new mid-sized ship?

Apart from the river cruises, all they have are Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony which are getting quite old. Will they ever come up with a new ship? Seven Seas Regent, Silverseas they all have new ships.

How expensive are D checks?

How often is it done? Every 5 years? How expensive are they? Many airlines simply don't want to do D-checks and retire planes. Such as the B747s.

Why did UA choose the B777-300ER and ditch the A350-1000? They could have kept the B747-400s for a few more years and replace them with the A350-1000 which is more advanced.

Perhaps the B777-300ER is bigger? Then why not go for the B777-9?

Re: Why did UA cut JFK-HKG?

It was cut about a month before 9.11.

From what I heard due to union+ETOPS issues back then staff were unwilling to fly a twin engine aircraft via north pole. They wanted to use the B777-200ER but was forced to use the B747-400 with restricted payload and thus this route became unprofitable.
